The government of China is now strengthening its environmental monitoring efforts as its economic development has shifted from that of a traditional industrial economy to a green economy where economic development and the ecological environment co-exist in harmony. Environmental protection agencies can now order illegal polluters to cut or cease production.

TUV Rheinland, leading provider of technical services, and the Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS) recently hosted a symposium entitled Environmental Supply Chain Management Under the New Normal 2018. Experts from industry associations, businesses, and higher education gathered in Shenzhen to discuss industry environmental management, sustainable water management, green supply chains, and other trending topics concerning how businesses can cut emissions and achieve green production.

The ministry of environmental protection was renamed the ministry of ecology and environment in 2018. The new environmental protection tax and introduction of regular environmental audits mean that brands and suppliers are now facing more challenges in compliance.

China is now embarking on a large-scale campaign of environmental governance due to the severity of its air, water, and soil pollution. Strengthened environmental monitoring is now inevitable. The continued escalation of environmental issues in China represents serious challenges for brand-name enterprises.

“Environmental risk develops in a dynamic way. It affects every brand supply chain and is connected to every citizen. TUV Rheinland will do all it can to help Chinese enterprises refine their environmental supply chain management and support the green, orderly, and sustainable development of China's industrialization,” said Frank Dorssers, vice president systems, customized services at TUV Rheinland Group.

Businesses in China need to pay more attention to environmental supply chain management. Uniform global standards must be adopted in order to turn their supply chains ‘green’, said TUV Rheinland in a press release.

TUV Rheinland said its new supply chain environmental risk assessment tool can help businesses identify external risks and carry out environmental risk assessments. The three dimensions of Environmental Policy Survey, Environmental Characteristics Analysis, and Environmental Performance Assessment help businesses conduct total reviews and implement environmental management for global suppliers.
